I'm going to start this post by stating that I'll always be younger and taller than Penelope Cruz.
Penelope Cruz Sanchez is the 'spanish enchantress'. She was born in Madrid, Spain and is the oldest of three children and remains a Spanish citizen. She's an actress who started out by training in Spain as a ballerina.
As an actress she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2009. She has said, "The most difficult thing in the world is to start a career known only for your looks, and then they try to become a serious actress. No one will take you seriously once you are known as the pretty woman."
Being cast as an 18-year old in Bigas Luna's 'Jamon Jamon' (1992), a film which required her to do nudity and sex scenes has, according to Penelope, psychologically scarred her for life.
Penelope claims to have been a vegetarian since 2000, is best friends with Salma Hayek (will do a post on her later) and she also speaks Spanish, French, Italian and of course English.
Something else to love about this Bombshell is she likes to adopt stray cats.
